Welcome To The Dollhouse

Lucky Duck

Sometimes the people you think you know end up surprising you…and not always in a good way. Even with long-time friendships, there can be facets people reveal that can both stun and sadden you. To be clear, I understand completely that one needs to accept his/her friends as they are, good, bad or in between. […]

The Census & Civil Disobedience: No Check Box for My Kidlet

Excuse me while I have a bit of a rant today, my friends. The subject of my rant is actually nothing new, I’m sorry to report. It actually began with the last census in 2000, it seems. But at that time I was either unaware, unenlightened, or not close enough to the issue for it […]

Open Adoption Roundtable #3: My Wishlist

No, I haven’t dropped off the face of the earth…really. It only seems that way. And no, the prospect of Boundary Crossers didn’t run me off. I’ve just been drowning…work, life, you name it. It’s been sapping my reserves. But first things first. I want to thank all of you for your supportive and helpful […]

Don’t Go Crossing My Boundaries

I belong to an Open Adoption Blogger webring. Some of you might find this curious since, of late, I rarely seem to blog about adoption.

When The Monkeys Start Throwing Shit

I’m hoping that I can lure my readers/commenters back with tonight’s sordid little tale. I get it. You don’t want to discuss my giant zucchini, serial killer novels or cute YouTube videos. Well today, I’ve got something for you. Zizi is asleep and AdoringHusband is out, so I’m blessed with the peace and quiet to […]

I’m A Non-Mom Mom

According to Teleflora, I’m a non-mom mom. I wasn’t aware of my non-mom mom status until one of the women on my adoption board passed on the information about the lovely Americas Favorite Mom contest being run by Teleflora, with sponsorship by NBC, Kraft, MySpace and Redbook. The contest seems innocuous enough until you look […]


I know. Way to leave people hanging, huh? Did I get out of the hospital or am I still in there languishing? The good news…I got out on Friday, just in time to pick up Z at daycare after her cupcake party and get in some toddler loving before she went to bed. All I […]
